A musical extravaganza in aid of Wokingham in Need, featuring Art Themen & Friends at The Whitty Theatre in Wokingham.

Art was involved in the traditional jazz scene in Manchester in the late 1950s. A member of the award winning Cambridge University Jazz Band from 1958 to 1961, he also became involved in the early London blues scene.

A previous winner in the tenor sax category of the British jazz awards, Art has toured the world fronting Stan Tracey's quartet for 20 years and has been featured with virtually everyone on the UK jazz scene. In addition he has played alongside American legends including Philly Joe Jones, George Coleman, Red Rodney, Al Haig, Charlie Rouse, Bud Shank, Nat Adderley, Arturo Sandoval, Sal Nistico, Scott Hamilton, Eric Alexander et al. Outside the jazz scene he has accompanied such diverse artists as Mick Jagger, George Harrison, Rod Stewart, Jack Bruce, Joe Cocker, Chuck Berry, Alexis Korner, and even Bing Crosby!

Art Themen is a player who has an original and individual style which appeals to all genre of jazz fans.

The theatre bar will be open before and after the performance and during the interval.

All proceeds raised from this event will go to Wokingham in Need for distribution to worthy causes including The Invictus Games.
